Habitual Traffic Offender Defense
What is HTO in Colorado?
If you are designated a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO) your driver’s license will be revoked for five years, with no driving privileges, from the date of an order finding you HTO. You may have received a letter in the mail from the Colorado DMV or a ticket handed to you by a police officer letting you know you are being charged with an HTO. It is important that you contact an attorney to help you before you enter any plea regarding this offense because dealing with the DMV and the court can be complex and you might be unaware that you are actually eligible to reinstate your driving privileges.
There are three main ways to be charged with HTO:
- Anybody who is convicted of three or more major offenses, with a seven-year period faces a charge for HTO. It is important to keep in mind there is a difference between moving violations and traffic misdemeanors like DUI charges.
- Anybody who has ten or more separate convictions for traffic offenses within a five-year period. These convictions must be violations of four points or more
- Anybody who has eighteen or more separate convictions for traffic offenses within a five-year period. These convictions must be violations of three points or more
